I am h pylori positive. Don't have pain in any area of stomach. I always feel something stuck in pit of my stomach which lead me to clear my throat very quickly. I am taking an ayurvedic medicine after which I have noticed my symptoms are improving. I guess I am able to digest food now. Earlier I was not able to digest food at all and next morning I pass very smelly stool. My acid reflux is caused due to smoking. Sometime I feel gas pressure under left rib but no pain.

Then avoid smoking and coffee and alcohol take you anti reflux medication - e.g. GAVISCON SYP 10 Ml Thrice daily avoid spicy food proton pump inhibitors when ever needed thnaks.
